I thought I’d fool “around” with some more small scraps, see what I could make. 14” X 1”, Salad Bowl Finish. It is end grain but I wasn’t thinking of anyone cutting on it. I learned a few new things with this project; I always find that rewarding.

Very nice John. I certainly have plenty of scraps scattered all over my shop. I think I’ll have to give it a try.
I have plenty of time just retired about a year ago.

Thank You we will enjoy Thanksgiving. I forgot you are in Canada. Stay safe.

Wow, cool cheese board but I somehow have a taste for a pizza now. I love these chaotic looking boards.

Thanks Ed, the more pieces you can get in a Chaotic board the better it looks. Retirement is the best!

Thanks Andre, I wouldn’t have the nerve to put one of these boards through a planer. I find I use the sander for all kinds of things.

Thanks Jim, Dave and Mel!

Takes allot of time to make things with scrap pieces, no wonder you don’t want anyone cutting on it. Very nice.
